The couple have now been married for 48 years, and it looks like Jamie and Jools are set to follow in their footsteps with a long and happy marriage.

The bride was a vision in a Neil Cunningham wedding dress and Jamie was his wife's 'something blue' in a pale blue Paul Smith suit and snake-skin brogues.

The couple have five wonderful children together; Poppy, 19, Daisy, 17, Petal, 12, Buddy, ten and River, five.
